COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Has a smooth, refreshing taste. Busch is brewed with a blend of premium American-grown and imported hops and a combination of malt and corn to provide a pleasant balanced flavor. Since being introduced regionally in 1955, the Busch beer brand family has grown to become one of the top-selling value beer brand families. Busch also holds a noted place in Anheuser-Busch history as the first new brand after the repeal of Prohibition.

Light, crisp & refreshing with some corn & grain. Not bad especially on a hot day but not something I would seek out again. N/A for a score? Come on RB.

Pours a straw gold with brilliant clarity. A soapy white head that fell fast and no real lace just a few spots. Nose is light corn and light grain. Thin and a only a hint of green apple and some corn sweetness. Hops are floral and light and go a bit grassy as the beer warms. Taste is clean and has only a mild hint of green apple, and DMS. NO diacetyl and this finishes with a bit of grass and hop bitter. No real fruitiness and a crisp carbonation. Balance between malt and hops was practically even and only during warming did the hops emerge. There was a touch of light acidity in the finish and this finished mostly dry but with a touch of sugary taste at the very end. Mouthfeel is thin and pleasant and a bit watery.

Itís got less of an apple taste than some other beers I have rated but a thinner body overall. The DMS was in acceptable limits and this beer had only a bit of sourness to creep on to the palate as it warmed.

Style notes - the standard lager can have little to no malt aroma, fast fallihg head, light body from the use of adjunct and DMS is allowed in low levels. The dms did creep on to the palate in sufficient amounts to keep from wanting another one of these. BUT the green apple sweetness was less than some other beers like molson canadian an d even heineken so I teetered between 2.75 and 3.0 for a taste rating. I gave it the lower rating because I do nto want another.

NOthing to remember about this lager beer. Good for a hot day and having a party for a game but not more.

Poured from 12 oz can into schooner glass Appearance: pours a sudsy white head that recedes rapidly with very little lacing. Color is pale straw with abundant carbonation. Aroma: mild aroma of corn and lightly toasted barley Mouthfeel: light, watery, and crisp with a quite dry finish. Flavor: again a mild combination of corn sweetness, sweet barley malt, and some grassiness. Overall: not offensive and not a bad beer for the price range.

Iím actually oddly sympathetic to this beer, itís not bad for being a ridiculously cheap industrial macro lager. Poured from a 50 cent can, this beer has the most bland clear yellow appearance, iím almost impressed at how watery they managed to make this beer appear. Aroma is tolerable, industrial grainy smell. Taste is relatively OK, not as watery as it looks, not in the same league as craft brews but has a lagery pale malt taste that occasionally lets the vague hoppy flavor come through. I associate this beer with tailgating, campfires, and other rural shenanigans. Works for those occasions where youíre not really paying attention to the beer youíre drinking, but least you can recognize that it is beer.

Pours very light yellow. Almost no color at all actually. aroma of sweet corn and a bit of skunkiness. The flavor entails corn, water, and bubbles. Lots of carbonation. I have to say thereís nothing bad about any of these macro pale lagers. Thereís nothing exciting about them either. This tastes like, you guessed it, beer. Its better than soda.

12oz can (Old Notes)-Pours golden with a decent sized head. Aroma of corn and grains. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew did nothing for me.

Can in USA April 2012. Not the worst pale lager I have ever had. But I was not tempted to by another one during my stay.
